Alternatively she sleeps on my back, in the stroller, or in the baby seat. She seems to sleep best in bed tho.
He falls asleep on his own at night, in his own room ... but for whatever reason he's not ready to do that at naps, which is fine with me. Still get my snuggle time.

however, for the last few weeks ds has preferred to remain asleep in my lap (he's there right now in fact - you can tell from my crappy typing.) he'll wake up if i try to transfer him to the bed. dd went through this phase as well, so i know it will end eventually.
she mostly naps in her stroller. we started doing it when she had a cold and needed to be upright and just worked really well so we kept doing it. she likes us to kind of jiggle the stroller back and forth until she falls asleep (which i do while surfing mdc ).
other than that, she naps on the couch or chair of a room that i'm in.
usually i nap with her if she's in the family bed.
occasionally she goes down for a nap in her pack n play (not very often) but sometimes i rock her to sleep and transfer her into there.
oh and she takes a lot of naps driving in my car. that's her favorite place to sleep. her eyes are closed before i get to the top of my street and as long as the car is moving...she's snoozin'.
Then I got the hang of nursing lying down, and now he naps in the family bed.
I WISH I could stay in with him and take a nap too or read... but his nap times are my works times. So when he falls off the boob I pop up and get to work.
He's 8 months old yesterday!

He fell off a couple of times when he was younger but the bed is really close to the floor. No harm done.
I am not worried about him falling now because he is able to get off (feet first) by himself now.
